I’ve always been a fan of going to bed and getting up early rather than staying up late to cram for a test or put some finishing touches on a project. Students don’t always believe that getting up early is a better option than staying up late. A new TED-Ed lesson titled The Benefits of a Good Night’s Sleep might convince them to go to bed. In the lesson, embedded below, we learn how sleep “resets” the brain. The video also explains how memories are formed and retained by our brains.
